Scrapbooking | Jan 2015

As a member of the team at thedailydigi.com I get to scrap with the digi files early. This fall I’ve been so slow to scrap and have very few pages to show for myself, hoping this new year will be filled with stories scrapped and told. Below is what I made with the January files:

My words was written in Norwegian, here is what they say:

It was with a lot of emotions we left your first homeland to fly to your new home. A few days earlier we had become a family of two. I was excited and happy (and a little bit scared as all mothers are). It’s hard to fathom that it’s now 9 years ago we sat on that plane together, but looking at the photos it’s easy to see. You have grown so much, we’ve moved from West Norway and now we live on our farm. We are a little family tightly bound. I’m so glad it was you that was to be my son. I’m proud to see what a great young man you are on the verge to become. I guess the next 9 years also will move fast, I’m curious to see what they will contain, but mostly I’m looking forward to follow along as you grow.

This too was written in Norwegian, I tend to do that when I want to express myself more freely, this is what it says, more or less:

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve dreamed of taking over the farm back home, dreamed about grain and vegetables, about fields and animals, about woods and houses, about what I most want to do: run an ecological farm taking care of both nature and people. Never did I think it should be so hard to find the right balance, not having enough strength to do as I wish, with so many tasks that just wait for me to start. I’m still dreaming about running the farm, getting both people and animal to thrive here, but it won’t happen over night. I’m practice being patient and brave, soon I’m the farmer, so then my dad finally can get some rest and enjoy his senior-farmer days.

As always: THANKS for stopping by!

  1. Loved seeing your son when he was little and reading your thoughts about becoming a mom! I think he’ll be a fine young man too:) The picture of your dad reminded me so much of my friend’s dad who was of Norwegian ancestry too. He was such a hard worker and I have only good memories of him. I love your idea for the farm 🙂
    Blessings,
